Have you ever looked at a pair of sneakers and thought "those would be cool roller skates"? Well, a few months back, Craft magazine asked us to write an article on making a normal pair of sneakers into roller skates. We emphatically answered "Yes!!!" Not for the free publicity and press(that was an added bonus), but we love to build custom skates. We have been transforming sneakers to skates for years and it is a service we provide on our website (just send us your sneakers and we will do all the work for you). Making sneakers into roller skates can be an intimidating task to the novice, but our skate mechanics here at skates.com are seasoned professionals that build custom skates daily. So you will be learning from the best. If you are feeling adventurous and want to try it out for yourself, gather up the supplies(available here at skates.com) and check out the May issue of Craft Magazine. Craft Magazine and Skates.com will walk you through every step of the process so you can get your roll on with style. We even created an instructional video that will give you a little more insight on the steps.
